Family History Research Service in Scotland
Need help tracing your Scottish roots?Are you a complete beginner at the increasingly popular genealogy game?Or are you an experienced researcher who would benefit from some local, on-the-spot support?- whatever the level of your interest in your family’s Scottish history, we are here to help you!
● Search basic Scottish records - although a lot of information is available online, you have to beware of confusion ( and extra expense!) caused by common names.
● Search for fuller Scottish records at Register House and the National Archives in Edinburgh, including wills, property transfers, Church of Scotland and Roman Catholic records.
● Source old photographs of places where your ancestors lived and worked, in Scotland.
● If your ancestors lived on a farm in a rural area of Scotland, the chances are that it still exists, and may not look too different to what it did 200 years ago – why not let us find it and take photos for you?
● Visit graveyards and take photographs. We can report the condition of graves, and leave flowers on your behalf.
● Locate addresses that no longer exist in their old form – we can send you map references, and you can actually view them on Google Earth!
● Research people and places before your visit to Scotland, and help you plan your itinerary.
● Give you a real ‘feel’ for who your Scottish ancestors were, and how they lived their lives.
